Employees of all state of Michigan agencies are pursuing degrees as a result of what began as a public-private partnership of the Michigan Department of Treasury and Davenport University. TreasuryU (now known as the “State of Michigan Partnership”) offers steep tuition discounts, a customized curriculum, and brings classrooms directly to employees to develop an engaged and highly educated cadre of civil servants in Michigan.
